TODAY IN MAYTOWN – Done – New “luxury” apartments in Maytown reflect the national trend. “The total number of households in the United States grew by 7.6 million between 2006 and 2016. But over the same period, the number of households headed by owners remained relatively flat. Meanwhile, the number of households renting their home increased significantly during that span, as did the share, which rose from 31.2% of households in 2006 to 36.6% in 2016.” – Pew Research

The Maytown School Suites’ rental units range from $875 to $1,450 a month and include an array of amenities including assigned parking spaces.
